Salford Information, Advice and Support Service give information, advice and support to children, young people and parents about special educational needs and disability, including health and social care matters.
We can help to make sure that your views are heard, understood and respected. We are a free, confidential and impartial service offering a single point of consistent contact. We can explain how special educational needs are identified and assessed, who you should talk to, and inform you of your rights and responsibilities.
